Special Education Guidelines – STATE (SEG-STATE) is a location-specific regulatory compliance package that reduces the labor intensiveness involved with ensuring that every student receives a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). This comprehensive, research-supported resource is aligned to special education-related federal laws and state statutes and provides a wealth of best practices for maintaining an effective and defensible special education program.

Available on CD in MS Word1 and MS Excel2 formats, SEG-STATE contains all of the resources needed to conduct a 360 degree “intake to exit” quality assurance review of school or district special education administrative guidelines. Customization and onsite staff development services are also available for this product.
